Hello all (or whomever peruses this bloggish diatribe):
It's now 2.41 am. Instead of going to sleep I am still awake (will go to sleep after writing and posting this).
Tonight when I got home from a little local neighbourhood outing I heard a rustle in my kitchen and sure enough a little grey mouse was in the animal friendly trap....Because it was 12.30 am (i.e. not 3 or 4 am while sleeping) I decided to take the mouse to the nearby park (a five minute walk) and release it there in the gentle rain....of course no idea what happens to it from here but it's sure preferable to killing the animal. About 5 days ago a second mouse was also ensnared in the same manner but that was in the middle of the night and so like the first one it was immediately released onto my balcony...so that's three in total now...hope that's the lot....
I was a little surprised to see I haven't blogged for three weeks after being somewhat keen on it after creating this website. I like that - I should only blog when I feel like it....I believe that way it feels fresher and spontaneously in tune with whatever my momentary reality is.
I am so in love with Amsterdam again....the "simple" pleasures like walking a less direct route via a canal to get somewhere, the biking and other things. Much to take in. Friendly little interactions with people one does not know. A friendly man admired my new bike today outside the pool after my swim there and we shared a few amiable words in Dutch.
Tot de volgende keer (Till the next time)
I truly wish for everyone (and me too) happiness, health and love
